Biography of George W. Wheeler


Wheeler, George W., Buffalo, was born at Niagara Falls, N. Y., September 1, 1856. With none of the advantages of wealth and bereft of his father at an early age, he found the usual difficulty which young men of limited means and high ambition experience in obtaining a college education, but finally was graduated from De Veaux College in 1872, an institution founded by Samuel De Veaux in 1857 at Niagara Falls for orphan and destitute children. Shortly after graduating he entered the law office of Lanning & Willett, where he remained for two years, finishing his studies, however, in the office of Burrows & Viele, and was admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of New York, October 10, 1879. He immediately began the practice of his profession in Buffalo, where he has since been in general practice with marked success. Mr. Wheeler is a charter member of the Thursday Club, being one of the orginal few that organized that club, and is president of the Board of Trustees of De Veaux College at Niagara Falls. Mr. Wheeler was married October 17, 1882, to Jennie F. Farrer, of Buffalo.
